Questions & Answers

Can it run a 24 vdc gate motor?

Asked by: Herman
Not by itself. You would have to purchase 2 panels and connect them in a series to acquire 24V needed.

Will this run a 12 volt up to 5.5 amp bilge pump?

I want to know if this will run a rule bilge pump 27d hooked directly to the pump without any regulator or controller? Or would I need a regulator? Just want the bilge pump to run when the panel gets sunlight. I don't care if it doesn't run on cloudy days or partial sun, etc. I don't want or need to have a battery to store power either. I just really need the panel to act as an on/off switch for the pump. The "on" being in sunlight.
Asked by: James
Yes and maybe not.. Most small bilge pumps can handle up and down loads on a 12 volt system. I have used 3 amp submerged bilge pump on this but I did not keep it connected over night to see if there will be any start and stop issues. I do know it works fine on a small fan and heater start stop no problem. No need for batteries charge controller ect,ect If you match the system correctly. I have done it and still do.

will it charge a 60 volt e-bike battery

will it charge a 60 volt e-bike battery
Asked by: hairpin
You would have to put multiple panels together in series to achieve the voltage for the 60 volt battery recharge. Each panel can put out as much as 20 volts per panel in bright sunlight. I have my panels set up in parallel to achieve more watts. My digital meter registers 19 to 20 volts on a regular basis.

Customer Reviews

100-Watt Polycrystalline Solar Panel for RV's, Boats and 12-Volt Systems is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 383.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I used two of these to replace two 60 Watt modules on my RV when I replaced the RV roof about two... I used two of these to replace two 60 Watt modules on my RV when I replaced the RV roof about two years ago. This is matched with a Morningstar 15 Amp PWM charge controller, two group 27 size 220 Amp-hr deep cycle batteries and a 1100 Watt sine wave inverter. The system works great. Note that the system does not produce the rated output. That is typical of solar modules. The peak output is about 120 Watts. But it produces plenty of energy for my needs for dry camping without a generator. I got the Z mounting brackets then decided that would not work on the RV. I needed a system that would allow me to remove the modules for maintenance. I cut some aluminum angle and made my own Z brackets that bolt together so I could remove the modules by removing easily accessible bolts. See photos.

A bit more expensive than some of the cheaper made ones out there but this panel is a lot more durable and the customer service could not be beaten. Every question I had about the Grape Solar System starting from purchasing the 50 watt starter kit to adding on a 40 amp charge controller and two 100w panels and every step of the way Steve at customer service answered my email the day I wrote it to them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used with the Grape 40 amp charge controller Tried it on my pontoon. I only have a small starter battery. Was going to do a dual battery set up with automatic isolation switch, but the cost was over $500 with two new batteries and the switch. Bought this with the 40 amp charge contoller (Comet). Saved a lot of money and my wife ran a 175 watt inverter for her laptop (works remotely) and I had the radio on for 3.5 hours, plus I kicked on lights to see how well the charge contoller worked. Kept the battery at 13.8 volts all day. Going to use this particular panel for our RV and go to a flexible solar panel so I can mount on the bimini and continue to use the grape controller. BTW, though it does not advertise, the grape contoller DOES have wifi capability and I was able to monitor from my phone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Panel, but not reliable inventory The Grape panels are very good and I have bought 10 of various wattage, but my gripe with Grape is that they are constantly discontinuing product lines which makes it impossible to buy identical panels a year or so later to expand strings for optimum output with MPPT controllers. For a present example, this panel is now out of stock and so I have to look around for something with a close Vmpp to keep the panels in the strings within 5 percent. Grape has dropped various very good panels in the past, examples 235 watt poly, 250 watt mono, 100 watt mono, 150 watt mono. So if you have plans to expand your system in the future then you may consider a name other than Grape that continues their panel products well into the future, or you will find yourself with an alphabet soup collection of panels on your strings.

Don't like the electrical connectors. Too large and costly....The wires to connect off the frame are not long enough to make a pair of panels connect and mount together

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great And Simple Panel, Not So Big In The Size With Good Punch of Power In cloudy day, it put out nearly twice of current power than Harbor Freights 15 watt solar panel during the bright sunny days. Three Harbor Freights panels will take around twice of space than this 100 watt, for only 45 watts. I'm charging 2 Lithium-ion battery pack in fully cloudy days, as my cheap-line Wal Mart tractor 12 volt battery at still standing 13 plus volt under a load with small power inverter still on. I want to refresh of some of your bad reviewers. 100 watt solar panel is rated that based on the perfect sunny days condition. Such as in bright and sunny days in 95 plus degrees with very hot panel to touch, will reduce your output power to 80 to 85 watts, not as 100 watts. During bright and sunny days in fall or mid winter, around 60 to 70 watts, is good as it's expected. Grape 100 watt solar panel, it means; up to 100 watts, or Grape can get into trouble, by peaking to 130 watts, can burn out your 100 watt controller. They have to be careful. If you wanted over 300 watts of overall, you'll needed 4, 100 watt panels to do just over 300 watts, as peak 400 watts, needed more heavy duty charging controller, to be on your safe side. "Good-Luck!" with your project and solar RVing.
